pet obesityIs your pet a little…shall we say, portly? Has your couch potato pooch been less than thrilled with daily exercise? Are you guilty of giving your purr pal one too many cat treats? The fact is, overweight and obese pets – like people – are becoming more of the norm.

And it’s understandable. After all, we adore our furry friends and want them to have the best in treats and mealtime deliciousness.
